Everyone has his or her own idea of why founder of Sherpa Capital Shervin Pishevar went on a rant for 21 hours straight.
Some believe the man simply wanted to enlighten people on what is happening in our world.
Others feel Shervin Pishevar is simply trying to divert attention away from his own misdeeds.
One thing’s for certain, however; this rant has got people talking.
Talking about what, exactly?
Among the topics in Shervin Pishevar’s rants was the claim that big business has “too much power” and is making it increasingly hard for small companies to thrive.
The five specific companies that Pishevar mentioned include
Each of these are beloved companies that probably won’t see a decline in business simply based off of Pishevar’s claims.
Business will continue to boom for these giants simply because customers love the products and are fond of the names behind the products.
Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, for example, are names that people will know forever. These men will be remembered for their hard work and the way they changed their own lives and the lives of others.
The products are loved simply because people use them personally and professionally.
Take Microsoft, for example.
Microsoft has a software called PowerPoint that people use to make slides for both business use and personal use.
Many times families attend a funeral of a loved one. What is one of the things that they see?
A slideshow of the great times they had when their loved one was still with them. This slide show was probably made using PowerPoint.
The same goes for Facebook:
people use it to stay connected to friends and family and to market their businesses.
Some people have increased their net worth exponentially simply by buying ad space on Facebook.
These companies have changed the way that people live their lives and do business.
More and more people will learn about the benefits of the products these companies offer, and the companies themselves will continue to improve their products, so if Shervin Pishevar’s goal here was to slander big business, it probably won’t work.
